Since Meghan Markle began dating Prince Harry, she has been compared to her sister-in-law, the old Kate Middleton, and opposed to it. Now that duchesses are officially family, comparisons and tabloid drama have only increased.
New reports suggest that the two are not particularly close after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their move to Kensington Palace, where they currently live alongside Prince William, Duchess Kate and their three children.
"The story of the move from Harry and Meghan to Frogmore Cottage? Harry and Meghan spread their wings, " Richard Palmer, royal expert for the Daily Express, said on Twitter Monday. "No big consequences, but Kate and Meghan are not close. Apparently, no royal good is available in London.
He added, "Fools on Twitter will not like it, but it's clear that Meghan is considered difficult and demanding by some family members and staff."
Daily Mail reporter Rebecca English echoed Palmer's comments, saying: "There is no doubt that the new Duchess of Sussex has not developed particularly close relations with her brother-in-law's wife."
She added, "Kate and her are just very different people, although sources insist that there was no dramatic conflict.
Kensington Palace would not comment on the royal rumor.
On Tuesday, things seemed to be rather windy from the outside while the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed the fans during a walk in the Leicester neighborhood.
When a fan asked the Duchess if she was excited about Meghan's news, she responded gracefully.
"Yes, absolutely, [I’m excited for Meghan and her new baby]"It's such a special moment to have all the kids and a cousin for George and Charlotte as well as Louis, so it will be really special."
For now, it seems that most of the drama belongs to Meghan's family, especially her father, Thomas Markle, and her half-sister, Samantha Grant, because they always have something to say about their famous family member.
